After children learn how to walk, they start to learn more and more about the world. They become interested in everything, like what certain toys taste like, what happens if you scratch a TV, or how to put a bunch of toys in an air vent. And at the age of 3, children want to do things on their own and help their parents around the house. But very often, they do it in such a way that makes their parents somewhat nervous.
We at Bright Side are sure that it’s not easy to be parents who are constantly cheerful and positive. Fortunately for us, many parents have shared the results of their kids’ hunger for exploration.

“My husband tried to hide this edible yet really spicy masterpiece in the fridge. But our daughter said, ’What you are you doing? You have to eat it. The plate has to be empty.’ That’s her grandmother’s favorite phrase, by the way. ’If you don’t listen to your child, your child won’t listen to you,’ is my husband’s favorite phrase.”
